Gav Thorpe is a knuckle head. There really isn't any indication to bring up such a topic. I much happier thinking that their sexuality is on the same level as human being. Some straight, some gay, some bi, I don't give two shits. Thats just so weird to bring up, and I'm surprised GW would allow an author to talk about sexual topics in a family store game.

Family game....with a god that's soul purpose is sex drugs and excess. With half nude hermaphrodites and multi breasted demonic creatures.

Ok, this is a quote by the commenter: "I am not some childish gay person who demands to have such themes in every piece of art, its just that in warhammer fiction this phenomenon really lowers the potential for depth and credibility." Now, how does not portraying a character's sexuality lower the potential for credibility? This person's statement of not being someone who demands such themes in every piece of art goes right out the window by simply asking Gav this question. I have yet to read any BL novel where a character's sexuality would bring anything to the story in any way. I have noticed they've done a fine job at making Space Marine's completely uninterested in such matters.

Honestly though, BL novels are not saturated with sex (Except that one HH novel I read, what a Jezebel) so what does it really matter what their sexual preference is? About as much as it matters that my beard is super fantastic when all you guys can see is my text.

OH! So GW is about sexuality! Even though slaanesh is one extreme aspect from one deity, from one army.

Did you notice the disapearence of boobs in the new slaanesh models or are you new to the game?

Since when did I say they were all about sexuality.

You have the scantily clad witch cults and sorceresses for the Dark elf. You also have the topless harpies for the dark elves. Also don't forget Morathi which has been redone in finecast. Slaanesh's minor demons are multi breasted abominations. You have the lizardmen which not a single one of em is wearing clothes. You also have many of the skaven that are nude too.

I'm not say warhammer is a M or A game, but it sure as warp not E, and I would not have it another way.

Been playing for 11 (+/-1) years.

Who cares? I'd rather have no gay characters than a few token gay characters. Sexuality isn't much of a relevant topic in Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40k, unless we're talking Slaaneshi and we all know they're bisexual -is there a word for an all encompassing sexual fetish?- as fuck.

OK but those aren't minatures are they, that is fluff.
Appearing as both male and female does not make you an Hermaphrodite.

GW Mini's are quite clearly one or the other, even the more androgynous Dark Eldar .
